In Class Presentations:
a. Each student will pair with another student to present a brief debate about the following public health issues. Each student will choose one topic from the list below and prepare a two minute written documentation of either the pro or the con side of the issue (to be decided upon in class). This documentation will be presented in class on either Monday or Tuesday of week nine (November 16 or 17).
b. After the initial pro and con presentations are completed, each person will have one minute to respond to the other students side (for a total of six minutes). It is very important that you practice your presentation as you only have two minutes initially and you will have to stop at the end of two minutes.
c. Grading will primarily be based upon the content of your documentation. However, points will be deducted if you are absent. In the case of your partners absence, you will respond to questions by the faculty.
B. The first/affirmative speaker will persuade the class in his/her favor, define terms, give rationales to support the position, and summarize important points. The second/negative speaker presents opposing arguments and/or support for an opposing case, redefines terms, and summarize important points. The goal of the one minute response is to rebut the alternate speaker.
